We have found that there are barrel dealers who clean and sell 50-55
gallon drums that have been used to ship materials like vinegar and
flavor extracts (We got one that had held rum once ...yum.) We use
these barrels in our garden for our watering system, and they hold up
well iver our winters here in zone 7A. As I recall, the sources are
listed under "barrels" in the yellow pages.
Our other source was a local importer of fancy foods.
